Former UConn RB Lyle McCombs gets CFL shot

Former UConn products have certainly been making the CFL news wire this week.

The headliner was Alex Mateas, who was the top overall pick in the CFL Draft. Mateas was taken by Ottawa leading to a potential reunion with fellow former Husky John Delahunt. However, the team announced that Delahunt was retiring due to issues with his left knee.

"When you have given something your all for as long as I have, it’s tough to look back and have regrets or anything,” Delahunt told the Ottawa Sun.

Now comes word that former UConn running back Lyle McCombs has been signed by the Toronto Argonauts.

McCombs ran for 2,681 yards, the fourth highest total in UConn history even though he played his senior season at Rhode Island.
